What the heck is going on? I figured these things would be little fried noodle like snacks but what I learned, what I discovered, what I bit into was more than I could even imagine. Now I'm not sure if it's good or bad, but it's surprising. I'd like to review this snack a little better but right now I'm in shock... I need a minute.

I should probably be a little clearer on what's throwing me off. You see as I poured a handful of these little crunchy snacks out I not only got a bunch of little noodle like treats but also a little star of crystallized sugar. I looked at it for a minute and then looked into the bag to be sure this was supposed to happen. I thought maybe I had some kind of defect and that I probably shouldn't eat it. I looked in and saw many more little crystal friends to eat. So I tried it. I can't say it tasted that great, but it was pretty different.

Hmmm, wait a minute, what if I just happen to have a bad batch of these things, what if my bag was made when one of the noodle making machines went a little haywire. Well it's the chance I have to take, for this may be my last review, due to possibility that these little star like... wait a minute, star snacks, I think they do belong. Well I guess I can't admit to being to swift since it did take 3 paragraphs to figure out that they should be there considering the name of this treat. Man I'm an idiot.

The noodles are fine; the sugary stars are strange but ok. I'm still not very swift, that's what I have to report today.
